  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday, helped by a week of fine weather."

    The cottage llocation gave convenient access to shops and restaurants, as well as the excellent bus services. We deliberately made this a car-free holiday, so we used the buses every day. This worked very well and allowed us to have an excellent, hassle-free, walking holiday

  • "Lovely cottage with a real back in time feel."

    Not just nice to look at but really comfortable with a bed that gives a good wonderful night's sleep. There is a very informative guest book. Hannah has an eye for detail from the many pictures on the walls to all the vintage games, china and collection of books. So much to do on the island and good restaurants in Ryde.
